New Multiculturalism Declines Orthodox Faith

 

Anti-Semitism is rife throughout Europe and spreading like a wildfire throughout urban and metropolitan America. Apparently multiculturalism does not include Orthodox Jews or any other Jew who stands with Israel, their faith, the Torah and the tenets of their faith. The new multiculturalism also rejects Catholic Orthodoxy, Christian Evangelicals, religious Christians and anyone who stands with the Bible. To be completely honest, they do not much like the United States Constitution either or anything originally written on parchment. Do not even mention stuff originally carved in stone, like the Ten Commandments. Our new multicultural society has a whole new set of rules and they are quite open-minded and accepting. Their one rejection is those who refuse to be as accepting as the mainstream multiculturalists. You have to understand, it is all about their rights and the rights of all those who choose to expand the societal structures and tear down the old walls which were too restrictive for the new multiculturalists. And we beg forgiveness ahead of time for any insult one might feel or find in what follows as we are not as sensitive as society now demands.

 

We are now a very sensitive society and we feel for everybody and everybody has rights. The LBGTQ and who knows what other letters are to come have rights. The transgendered rights are very fluid as one can feel like anything at any point in the day and switch a few moments later, that is their right. The gays and lesbians have rights and must be permitted to have marriage as a social arrangement such as civil unions are insufficient, it must be marriage because the Biblical definition must be challenged and destroyed. The old constructs must be challenged and destroyed utterly and completely. Nothing of the old must be permitted to stand, and that includes anybody found holding on to those antiquated, obsolete and hateful standards on which Western civilization stood supreme for these past numerous centuries. Military service is out and the soldier must be reinvented and the military services are the new Petri dishes where societal changes are tested. Women in submarines, on the front lines and in every last place where only men dared tread before and if they cannot meet the requirement, then change the requirements until even the most tender woman will pass if she decides to join. The requirement for a Ranger to run eight miles twice every day of the week, are you sure it has to be eight miles, and twice a day, for real? Perhaps you meant yards for the ladies who want to have that Ranger patch upon their shoulders. As we stated, the standards of the old must be bent and broken to accept the new openness where everybody had rights, well, except the right to limit anyone else’s right to be and do whatever they please, that would be standardism, a forbidden ism.

 

Ism’s are another problem for the multiculturalists. They abhor the vast majority of ism’s, and for many we agree. They oppose Fascism, a wise choice, and classism, racism, sexism and other exclusive ism’s as do we. They claim that these destructive isms’s are all the children of religious belief because religious belief is what led to all the wars of history, well, Judeo-Christian beliefs led to all the wars of history. They have replaced ism’s with their defined freedoms. Fascism was replaced with social justice, classism was replaced with social justice, racism was replaced with social justice, sexism was replaced with social justice, every ill has been cured by social justice. And exactly who gets to decide what is social justice, well; everybody provided their definition is all-inclusive and free of any rejection beyond rejecting those who wish to apply standards. Standards are evil and are replaced with rights to defy standards. This is a very happy-go-lucky new world where you can be whatever you want to be without any pain, suffering, accomplishment or even proficiency. We are waiting for the last of the standards to fall, those standards which require physicians to be licensed, lawyers to pass an exam, pilots to be certified and all those other restrictive qualifications so many of the choicest professions require for people to practice these trades. How so limiting these items are. We will wait patiently as the new multiculturalists get around to breaking down these barriers to the right to choose whatever profession you feel qualified to hold each morning when you wake, or afternoon if you choose to sleep in. One might even decide to change professions at lunchtime. Oh the world will be so much freer once those requirements to practice so many professions are removed and anybody can be whatever they choose.

 

The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it

 

It is all about you, or actually the I, where I is individuals and individuals have rights, all rights, and no responsibilities. That makes the world so much more open and accepting. Open and accepting, those are the new bywords we are to live by. Don’t hate, simply accept. Follow that credo and you will be feeling on top of the world by noon today. With everyone free to be free and every I for individual gets to decide everything about their life and who or what they decide to be, what could be more liberating. So what if the new pilot of the Jumbo Jet you are flying on never flew even a paper airplane before this morning, he decided he wanted to pilot a Jumbo Jet and who are you to tell them they cannot be your pilot, remember, universal acceptance. You need surgery, well we know just the person, they decided over lunch today they wanted to be a surgeon and they will do your operation for free, just sign this release form, remember, universal acceptance. Doesn’t this make you all squishy inside with the new world without standards where anyone can be anything they want? It is just so liberating to be rid of those stuffy old standards.

 

Rights without responsibilities are just so darn liberating. We should have special days celebrating our new liberated world. How about an international be whatever you wish day. Never mind, that is every day in this standards free environment. Oh, wait; we do need environmental standards because all pollution is evil. We will need a standard whereby polluters are punished for destroying the Earth and injuring Gaia. We have adopted some things which we do believe in such as our actual atheistic religion because having an omnipotent and all-seeing, all-knowing Supreme Being would be just so like before. We want everything to be new. We have decided on being atheists who believe in Secular Humanism, a new ism we accept. This is a completely new faith where we follow a philosophy or life stance that embraces human reason, ethics, social justice, and philosophical naturalism while specifically rejecting religious dogma, supernaturalism, pseudoscience, and superstition as the bases of morality and decision-making.* We celebrate the human being as the highest form of life, intelligence, knowledge and atop of all things. This is a whole new philosophy and is absolutely nothing like ancient Greece. Why would we bring up Greece, especially ancient Greece? Sure they allowed all forms of sexuality and the freedom to choose whatever one felt they should be and all those other rights but they had a slave class, people who were denied full rights. We would never do that except for those social-luddites who insist on imposing those old religious standards rejecting the freedom and rights which we believe. They want to hold society back from becoming totally free with their insistence that rights come with responsibilities and that what we do matters and they believe in a Supreme Being, how so year zero. They do not deserve to be full citizens in our new reality as they would be such a bummer and bring us down from our responsibility free lives where we can be whatever we decide whenever we decide. Especially those who want to drag those ancient Judeo-Christian ‘actions have consequences’ definition of life, unacceptable, completely unacceptable.

 

This new secular humanism morality is based on the 1960 and 70’s “If it feels good, do it.” There were so many phrases back then. Things which still work today such as, “Life is what you make it.” Of course we look at that somewhat slanted making it more like “Life is what you want to define it to be.” This is still as the base concept, just liberated a little. The problem with the new social construct comes when you add in children. But the education system has figured out the way around having lessons restrict the children. So they are now giving them lessons in how to feel including feeling different. They educate children pre-puberty about being transgendered, gay, bisexual and all about sexual liberty in modern society. Burdening children with this almost immediately before they reach their teen years, like life itself does not mess with their minds during those years. Prepubescent children are unaware of their sexuality and teaching them about such things only serves to confuse them and lead them to believe they are transgendered or gay or lesbian or whatever unusual thoughts they may have as a result. Then their hormones and bodily changes kick in and there is no wonder so many children end up needing help, but even the help only serves to further confuse them as the modern approach is all about feelings and how no feeling need be suppressed. Schools need to teach children how to think and solve problems and not how to feel and be empathic to everyone around you and support their feelings. When your teachers teach that there is no such thing as evil or restrictive rules except that you must allow everyone to be who and what they choose to be. Then the teachers show preferences for the children with the most imaginative realities for themselves, often realities which cannot be continued into the real world. But soon these students with nothing in the way of logical problem solving will be the ones leading the Western World and deciding its fate.

 

These morality free and open-minded students will have minds so open that nothing is beyond imagination and since they are taught that nothing is inherently wrong, it is no wonder that they simply accept everyone as is. What is amazing is how these children are able to operate in the real world, but then many of them have proven they are unable to cope. This is the reason for “safe paces” on our college and university campuses along with therapy rooms where they can be placed in a stress proof environment with calming music, puppies and kittens to cuddle, overstuffed pillows to sit or lie upon and counselors to reinforce the concept that you are strong and you are just great as you are, even if as you are is someone unable to cope with the simplest things in life. The thing is the students are given some very strict standards they are required to follow to the letter. Their liberal, leftist teachings are to never be challenged and they are not to be required to ever accept any alternative to what they have been taught to feel. If and when a speaker has been invited to speak at their college, university, community, club, organization or even at their place of employment, this is never to be tolerated. They must be petitioned against until the invitation is withdrawn and upon failure of such the event must be prevented by any and all means necessary and should such a speaker actually make it to their event, they must then be shouted down having their speech drowned out making their words unintelligible to those who came to listen to their talk. This has become standard procedure across many college and university and now in high school and even earlier such people are booed off the stage at the insistence of the teachers. The students are also taught strict obedience to those who are more, or most, knowledgeable. Never must a disparaging word be uttered in their presence. Many colleges and universities also have added a free speech zone where any conservative or standards centric student can rant and rave about their old and now discarded as barbaric concepts to their heart’s content as no matter how loud they scream these small places are well out of the range of any to hear their protestations. They may as well invoke the Cone of Silence from the Television show Get Smart.

Perhaps the way forward is to actually allow everybody to choose his or her own morality. The problem is these new libertarians, self-professed as they may be, have also decided that there will be standards after all. Unsurprisingly, their standards are simply defined; it’s their way or the highway. They will not tolerate even the lightest deviance from their defined perfect world. Every form of deviance must be permitted and accepted and any attempts to live by the old standards are to be shunned and forced out of the view of the society. Judeo-Christianity may be practiced freely within your own home with the shades drawn or in your house of worship, but such is banned from the public sphere. Nobody is to be judgmental unless it is to judge any conservative stalwart as mental. Conservatism needs to be eradicated from all life, particularly political life. This has been the new standard for the Democrat Party which is why on virtually every piece of legislation proposed, they have voted in complete uniformity as if their leaders have cast their votes for them. Even if a bill would benefit their home constituency, if the Democrat hierarchy decides the bill is conservative and supportive of the old world or damaging to their craven new world order, then it must be uniformly and unanimously rejected. The same goes for the appointment of conservative jurists or even strict constructionist jurists to any national judgeship. The Democrats will reject a judge even if their decisions have been exacting to the law as they want judges whose minds are more liberated from stuffy old laws and who can find new rights and new liberties in the existing laws expanding their plurality strewn society into sectors before unimagined. Abortion on demand was one such right which was discovered in the Constitution under the Roe v. Wade which was a decision handed down by the Supreme Court under Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, considered one of the most liberal leftist courts in modern history. The consenting seven justices were Harry Blackmun, Warren Burger, William Douglas, William Brennan, Potter Stewart, Thurgood Marshall, and Lewis Powell while the dissenting two justices were Justice William Rehnquist and Justice Byron White. Six of the seven voting in favor were appointed by Republican Presidents, something to note for posterity. This was the landmark case which led to a number of additional cases where rights were discovered hidden within the laws of the land. This was also the case which opened the Supreme Court to the new social outlook for maximizing rights while removing responsibilities. This decision took away the consequences to having unprotected sexual encounters or not planning or choosing wisely in one’s sexual habits thus removing the responsibility for such restrictions on how one lived and replaced this restraining responsibility with the consequence free means for removing the consequence of sexual encounters, namely procreation.

 

The right to abortion has had a devastating affect on the public, particularly in Europe and Russia where the population is decreasing as abortions combined with abortifacients and birth control measures to women having two or less children with many choosing against marriage, or at least permanent marriage, and having no children to restrict their choices in life. Life is now more free but as a consequence the society which has broken into this state after a long and successful run as the top of the chain, most wealthy, technologically advanced and leading the world only to now have a swindling population even in the United States of the very peoples who had accomplished much of these fetes. Western society has reached a magic plateau which in a few more years, if things which us old school fools believe are broken are not repaired and solutions found to make our society worth preserving through required sacrifice, then the new, sacrifice free, standards open, universally accepting and judging all cultures equal will wither and soon die on the vine producing nothing and affecting nothing replaced by whatever proves to be the strongest of those remaining. Currently those appear to be Islam, Chinese Communism with a touch of Capitalism or some other unforeseen group which could prove to be the Hispanic society which will inherit the productive might of the United States. The death of Western Culture has been the conscious choice to place personal pleasure over any societal future. No standards and no limits appear to have produced its limit, the lack of progeny to carry their wonderful new lifestyle forward. The only group reproducing near, at or above replacement rate has been those who have that old time religion, imagine that.

Since before Homo Sapiens first walked the earth there were earlier versions which vied for predominance and if but for a super weapon would have become the earlier predecessors of modern man. We postulate that the first super-weapon was likely the club which began as a simple heavy branch of a tree. This was a vast improvement over the closed fist as it granted greater range and impressive additional force. The club proved to give even greater force than the thrown rock though it did place the wielder closer to the prey and thus in greater danger. These weapons improved but eventually there was to come a divide which separated the two main branches contending, though unknowingly; to eventually produce what would evolve to be modern human beings. One group had a sturdy spear which, like its predecessor the club, relied at fighting at close distance from the prey and the other the thrown spear which had to be balanced and was to be hurled from a safe distance though it required carrying numerous spears into the hunt. When these two competing branches of what might become humankind came into direct competition the elegance of the thrown spear and the speed and stamina it had granted its wielder over those who utilized a thicker thrusting spear which required close order and greater strength which had their society develop greater strength at the cost of speed and stamina, the more advanced throwing spear proved the vital difference.

 

Through the years of human history there has been constant evolution of weaponry with each successive development resulting in a more effective killing machine and greater casualties in each subsequent war. The development war soon became a battle between defensive protection and the ability to deliver harm. Shields and leather armor was superseded by steel weapons which led to layered armors and eventually stronger metals and eventually plate armor which made the wearer almost invulnerable to any single blow from any weapon of its day. This led to two weapons which changed the path of human history. The first was the crossbow which was capable of piercing even heavy plate mail armor and a weapon specific to the soldiers of the British Isles, the longbow. The first use of the longbow, made possible due to the Yew tree and its particular properties, came onto the battlefield with initial devastating results during the Hundred Years’ War in the battle of Crécy where the French had set their camp beyond range of archers, regular archers whose ranges were well known by all. The British archers setup early the next morning much to the bemusement of the French who continued with the breakfast presumably trading jokes about the crazy British lining up their archers beyond possible range. The surprise followed by the utmost confusion interrupted the French merriment and fine food as the longbows delivered with stunning accuracy matching their astonishing range. The range of the longbow being an advantage was relatively short-lived as this super-weapon was soon copied by every army across Europe but too late to cause surprise as tactics, especially pertaining to the distance from the enemy when establishing campsites.

 

Human history could be considered as a succession of super weapons and the tactics and next super-weapons to counter them. For years the chariot was the ultimate weapon which was used to the utmost perfection by the Egyptians and later the Persians and the one form of attack for which Alexander the Great specifically trained his infantry in a tactic by which to not only blunt their effectiveness but actually defeat their use completely, even the bladed chariot which spun sword-like blades from each wheel. The chariot eventually became the tank and the arrow the bullet, grenade and the anti-tank rockets. The trireme became the galleon and then the ironclad to the battleship and aircraft carrier. The hot air balloon used to aim artillery eventually led to the biplane which was turned to a machine of war which would become the heavy bomber of World War II and eventually the jet fighters and strategic bombers. These strategic bombers today carry the ultimate weapon man has produced to this day, nuclear weapons. These weapons have been developed to perform precise tasks. These include thermonuclear weapons capable of destroying cities, tactical nuclear weapons useable for total destruction on a scale appropriate for the battlefield, neutron bombs which destroy the living beings while leaving the buildings and all material things completely intact, an Electromagnetic Pulse device which destroys electronic devices with more effective such devices capable of destroying electronic grids on an unimaginable scale, or even the most simple of nuclear weapons such as those which President Obama has promised to prevent Iran from ever obtaining, for as so many say such weapons must never be used. Perhaps we need never use such a phrase when it would be so much more convincing, especially for the United States and its representatives, to say that such weapons must never be permitted to be used ever again and demand that the memory of their initial use be recalled and their horrors understood and perhaps even a bit of contrition might go a long way in proving the honesty of intentions.

 

The unfortunate reality is that eventually nuclear weapons will fall into or already exist in the wrong hands and they will be utilized as weapons of war once more. They might be implemented as a weapon of last resort to attempt to alter what appears a certain defeat. They might be implemented as the initial weapon in order to produce a level of destruction making any opposition impossible and producing what is hoped will result in an unalterable victory. They might be used solely to alter the areas of a battlefield where defeat appears inevitable or used to replace artillery in paving a clear path for an advance. The inevitable truth is every ultimate weapon has been used in war even despite treaties or agreements. World War I saw the extensive use of nerve agents and poison gas which produced such a horrific toll in human life that it was relegated to the dustbin of history presumably due to treaties reached after the war making their use illegal. There have even been weapons control treaties since then forcing the destruction of stores of chemical and nerve agents. Still, despite the red line threat by United States President Obama, Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad turned to chemical weapons repeatedly ignoring any threats and calling President Obama who backed down sputtering helplessly until Russian President Putin offered a way out which the United states President jumped at and then allowed for Assad to renege on the deal without paying any penalty. There have been laws to war agreed upon by major powers but often only ever observed by one side in most conflicts. Another weapon which saw extended use even to the recent age but has been targeted for elimination by the United Nations and numerous nations are landmines due to their toll of killing civilians even years after the war in which they were utilized had ended. The same is the case for cluster munitions which place bomblets across a wide area often scattering many unexploded munitions which are relatively small but remain deadly even for years after the conflict has ended. These as well have hurt many civilians and often have taken the lives of children most regrettably. There are presumably treaties against the use of weapons of mass destruction which, unsurprisingly, nuclear weapons are the current kings. Still, the treaties are merely pieces of paper and are not the most effective counter to any kind of weapons and especially not against nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction.

 

All of this leads us to the current situation where we have been told that huge amounts of progress have been made and a framework has been constructed for the remainder of the negotiations which will now have June 30 of this year to reach a final agreement. The expectation is that we will believe that the framework is the actual and set in stone agreement of principles from which the rest of the agreement will be fleshed out and the framework will define the end agreement. What the Iranians have agreed is that they provided President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry with their necessary framework which includes everything they had pursued and explained to the Iranians were necessary for them to continue. This was granted to them but the Iranians have little if any intent of continuing to negotiate using the framework as their model and skeleton around which to structure the finished agreement. The Iranians have simply provided President Obama a piece of paper to wave around and claim victory knowing that the end result will have little if anything in common with the framework. The Iranians believe that everything is fungible and the framework is actually made of wet clay and can be remolded and remodeled until it looks exactly what Iran desires or it will be balled up and discarded. President Obama has about as much a framework as British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlin had after the 1938 Munich treaty with Germany. There is a great difference between the framework and the Munich treaty, there are a lot more people suspicious and untrusting that any kind of agreement has been defined by this framework and that the June 30 deadline is almost as meaningless as the past deadlines which have been redefined repeatedly thus far. The odds are that just like North Korea, the Iranians have developed and are producing nuclear weapons and readying the necessary missiles including ICBMs on which to mount their warhead. One thing that makes this even more believable is that many in the State Department negotiations team are the same people who made up the negotiating team that negotiated North Korea into being nuclear armed on their watch. The parallels between the two negotiations are astounding where though the locations have changed, there are actually many of the same players.

 

The thing that needs to be debated is what to do should, or when, it becomes obvious that the Iranians have been negotiating in bad faith and have been developing and building nuclear weapons while giving the IAEA inspectors the runaround and extending negotiations until they are ready for whatever usage they have planned for their nuclear weapons arsenal. This is not because Secretary of State Kerry is intentionally permitting this farce to occur with his being a willing accomplice. He likely believes that he and the team selected are working towards a comprehensive agreement that will prevent the Iranians from developing and building nuclear weapons. Of course there is the possibility that President Obama and those working with the Iranians are all knowingly working a grand deception. Those believing such a conspiracy existing are beyond skeptical and possibly beyond cynical and into the range of conspiracy theorists who find monsters, intrigues, schemings, duplicities and deceits of every nature lurking everywhere in our world and especially in those places where actions by their government and even more so when their government is dealing with other governments and the more governments the more conspiracies they can believe. I envy such people as they live in a world of scheming and intrigues at every turn; it must be fascinating with options beyond calculations. Me, I try to limit myself to one or two conspiracy theories per week as I find enough need for antacids at that level of cunning treacherous inane insanity.

 

When it comes to the Iranian P5+1 talks we do not need to imagine conspiracies or trickery as there is sufficient reality to keep one’s mind reeling from the levels of absurdity. The Iranian P5+1 talks have been a part of President Obama’s foreign policy where it has been his hope to negotiate a rapprochement with the Mullahs and leadership of Iran bringing them into the light, so to speak, much in the way that Henry Kissinger and Richard Nixon pioneered relations with mainland China. Unfortunately for President Obama, unlike China which was seeking a path into the community of nations, Iran has a totally different dream where they lead the newly unified Islamic world of Shiite Muslims into the great conflagration which will bring the return of the Twelfth Imam and the inevitable Islamic universal rule over the Earth forever in unity, peace, tranquility and perfection as defined by the Quran. The newest intrigue came recently when a journalist, who had close ties presumably with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani running the media campaign which many claim was instrumental in his rise to the Presidency, arrive in Lausanne, Switzerland to cover the negotiations surprised the world and sought asylum defecting from Iran. The Journalist named Amir Hossein Motaghi in an interview with an opposition channel from London claiming not to see any sense pursuing the profession of journalist since he only wrote what he was told and not to do honest reporting. But he had far more interesting information, which many immediately jumped upon as convincing evidence of a conspiracy, when he harshly criticized the American role in the talks was solely to convince the other nations of the P5+1, France, Britain, Germany, China and Russia, to accept the Iranian demands in forming the agreement. He also presumably revealed another conspiracy in that a good number of the Iranian negotiating team are reporters dispatched to assure that the only news being reported in Iran meets with the government approval. Hopefully he does not expect that part of his story to shock too many people but his report that the United States is working with Iran and has taken the role of easing the Iranian preferred agreement through the other western nations as Russia and China are not likely to disagree with such wording of an agreement. The proof will come either at the completion of the negotiations in the wording of the final agreement, not even remotely any framework, or when Iran uses a nuclear weapon either in a test or in an actual attack on another nation.

 

There is one other aspect of the worth of any agreement, and that is the intent of the signatories now and onto future rulers. Should anybody decide to ignore the agreement, either on the Iranian side or a future President of the United States deciding that they are not bound by the agreement, then it dies a quick and merciful death. That is the one item which nobody other than the people in question can answer and that is such a remote probability as to make for some additional conspiracy theories. While I am not privileged to know any of these schemes, I can guess that just as many claim perfidy by President Obama, ignorance by Secretary of State Kerry, and differing levels of deceit and dishonesty. The interesting thing is that there are numerous people, some holding high national offices, who are predicting the inevitability for Iran attaining nuclear weapons despite any agreement which might be signed at the end of the negotiations, should such an end ever come to fruition. That is the biggest problem with these negotiations as the existence of a term which is defined in the writings of the Quran named taqiyya (Arabic: طاقية) which allows Muslims to hide their true intentions when doing so is required to advance conditions facilitating the advance of Islamic policies or to give the individuals and those they represent or function with an advantage by pretense, dissimulation or outright lying. This could potentially make any agreement made with the Iranians worthless in reality if they are able to deceive about their intents and sign anything with the intent of completely ignoring the terms and limitations of that treaty. When you partner in negotiations believes that it is perfectly moral and virtuous to deceive you and conceal their intents and even define items to mean exactly the opposite or mean anything other than your understanding, then the wording of any agreement is worthless. This was the problem with the 1938 Munich agreement which eventually cost Europe the ultimate price, a price they are still reaping the rewards of that mistake. I fear if the negotiations with Iran produce similar results, the world will be unable to hold up under the ramifications of deceit in these talks.

 

Another word and concept that should be taken into consideration is Hudna (Arabic هدنة) as its definition is vitally important, especially if the Iranians are looking at this as such a treaty, then we know that it can only be expected to apply for a decade at the longest. Perhaps this is why the major stipulations of the framework are set to expire after ten years. If that was the reasoning behind such a limitation, then why was that not mentioned as it would have been the perfect excuse for the limitation. Maybe there are too many coincidences or maybe we are being denied all the pertinent information, but there are too many things which are suspicious about the framework that beg for an explanation to just let things go by without questions being asked and answers given. Maybe we are all becoming too cynical and suspicious leading us to read more into trying to explain things which will be explained as the final agreement is laid out. The last item that is really worth demanding an explanation is why this agreement will be reached and affirmed by a back door to force it on the American public. Having the treaty affirmed by the United Nations and not through Congress does place a dark cloud of suspicion over the deliberations, the seeming near blackout with information being carefully released to the public and all the secrecy just screams for us to look out and demand some of that transparency we were promised when President first ran and won office in 2008 as the lack of same also leads solely to public suspicions. Just this once open the doors and windows and allow the light of day to shine on everything as what do you have to lose as you are in the final two years or is this the final surrender in your plan to remake America and her place in the world. I sure hope this is not a total cover-up for allowing the Iranians to gain nuclear weapons so they can become the world’s hegemonic power in the Middle East, as that has to be one of the worst betrayals of the free world in history. If that is your plan for your legacy, then you will receive a special place in history, the place of the singular President who brought on the final conflagration that Albert Einstein claimed would cause the next war after that to be fought with sticks and stones. I promise you that is not the remembrance you should desire as it will cause the memory of your name to be even worse than that of Benedict Arnold or Guy Fawkes and be the President that sold out the world and all sense and reason simply seeking a legacy. What a legacy that will make.
